This month we show gratitude for the year that has passed. We welcome guest speaker Barbara Drake, an Elder and culture keeper of the local Tongva tribe, who has been leading a revival of the plants and foods once depended on by indigenous people of the San Gabriel Valley. Barbara will help us to move beyond connection with the “environment,” and move toward communion with our earthen family. For this special potluck, we ask guests to bring a food dish of cultural or personal meaning. Perhaps a dish served during times of celebration or a dish served by mom to comfort, whatever has meaning to you. We will be sharing these special dishes and their importance during dinner.
